  • Absolutely brilliant. This was our first holiday in 14years and the attention, the environment, the care and consideration of our family, the clean functioning well appointed unit was far superior than expectation. I would and already have highly recommend creel lodge to one and all. When we have saved enough we shall definitely return. Hmmm, i wonder if the children will still be living at home? no, we won't leave it that long. Jill and richard were the best hosts and were a wealth of information and good advice concerning their locale. I am hard to impress at the best of times i have to admit, but it's things like our visit to creel that just enhance good memories. I can see from other reviews we are not alone in our opinions. Thank you and well done. 5

  • Hello Sue and Matt. Thanks so much for your great comments. We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay at the Creel and hope that we will see you back here in the not too distant future . The snow on the mountains is amazing and having it snow down here at village level was even better. Enjoy the rest of your holiday. Regards Jill and Richard.

  • We still enjoyed a pleasant 6 night stay in an "executive" suite despite not being able to use the settee and easy chair which (to us at least!)had a strong residual smell of what may well have been dry-cleaning solvent. Full marks go to friendly Management, the exceptionally comfortable bed and very handy and efficient communal on-site laundry. 5

  • We loved our stay at Creel Lodge. It's clean, quiet, very well equipped, very reasonably priced and run by lovely, friendly hosts. We arrived late so they had the key in the door and the light and heaters on ready for us. The setting, right beside the river, is lovely and it's a great base for anyone wanting to ski Mt Ruapehu - just a 40-min drive to the ski fields. Highly recommend Creel Lodge and will definitely be back again. 5
